With infrared spectroscopy, we studied the bulk electronic properties of the topological antiferromagnet MnBi2Te4 with TN ≃ 25 K. With the support of band-structure calculations, we assign the intra- and interband excitations and determine the band gap of Eg ≈ 0.17 eV. We also obtain evidence for two types of conduction bands with light and very heavy carriers. The multiband free-carrier...

The origins and development of the arid and highly seasonal steppe-desert biome in Central Asia, the largest of its kind in the world, remain largely unconstrained by existing records. It is unclear how Cenozoic climatic, geological, and biological forces, acting at diverse spatial and temporal scales, shaped Central Asian ecosystems through time. Our synthesis shows that the Central Asian...
